I gotta watch the news the way I watch comedy and although it aint funny
its a great side for the unfair trade coffee and how it wears the water with suspicion †
the weatherman knows nothing anymore unless he admits the system has changed the systems and there's a pattern evolving that won't dissipate over the gulf stream †
the truth is my daily bread is more a threat than every terrorist combined there's a new god in our global climate and it lives on profit while the zombies warn us all about aliens and offer us eternal life in the Matrix

GAY Ė (for my dear friend James)
There wasn't any other way
I told you dad, that I was gay
I knew you'd freak, I knew you pray
Itís not your fault, I was born this way
I know your anger questioned why
I know I made my mother cry
But I couldn't carry on the lies
With heterosexual alibis
You said it was a sad, sad day
Your family values gone astray
I couldn't, wouldn't try to obey
Your wish, Iíd chose a different way
Still;
I'm glad you came to visit me
The sight of me makes most folk flee
Thereís still no...

Fossil fuel consuming tyrant
Four wheels of elevated capitalism
Styling of an abused brick
With matching aerodynamics


Your necessity a lie
Gamed gullible voracity
Taken for a ride
By marketing hypnotherapy


Reversing over our future
In all-wheel rending violence
Pompous idol of audacity
Of impotent compensation





Originally written with the intention of entering Grace's Disgusting and Repugnant competition...until I realised it was prose she had called for! FAIL - LOL

You sit there miserable, controlling your thoughts
Making your choices based on your own wants and needs
You forget to listen carefully and take a breath
You forget that your thoughts become you

Your conscience disappears
Measuring the honesty of your selfishness
Sit and think, be honest
Regret sinks in
You realize you have topped the measuring jug

Thereís no turning back
You did what you needed to
You did what you wanted to
No more conscience
Just destruction

Hunger
It must have been numbing
A city surrounded and skeletal people
Falling on the pavement and
The boy Ė who can anyone forget him-
He had stolen potatoes in the field
And the guards made him drop them
His spuds rolling in the street
And soldiers laughing kicking them around
Food for his family.
Some pictures stay with you forever
Truth cannot be eradicated.

Sit back and reminisce, itís always been like this
canít escape the death kiss, given to the ghetto kids
media figured ignorance is bliss, justice went for a piss
wounded, wonder where, when and why the world went amiss
I dismiss, this hypocrisy, some like to call it democracy
beautiful idea, yet it doesnít apply to my poor peer
you smile to me, but why are you carrying a spear
lend me your ear, so you can hear, itís crystal clear
little boy continue to live in fear, the pain wonít disappear
it happens here, happens...

There are no friends
Just illusions that betray.
Another drop in the ocean,
Another morn, another day.
Tired of your fables and your lies,
Your eyes on me stay
as you sharpen your blade
and shoot daggers through your gaze.
I remember still the pain,
The bruises, the scarlet stains
Now scars just remain
As a reminder of my shame.
Once I too was full of light,
Full of grace.
As I fought against your demons,
And drove away your bane.
Mercy, my weakness
I was the last one to stay,
And so I learned the hard way ...

I hate haters who hate for no reason
I hate arrogant, ill mannered people
I hate ignorant and deliberately stupid people
I hate mentally delusional religious people
I hate politically correct, ribbon wearing people
I hate people

It hurts to find,
that someone loving in your mind,
canít be trusted.
A bad mistake to trust a liar.
Like he lit your heart on fire,
n' Let it blaze, burn, and smoke.
Like itís a gigantic fucking joke.
And just like that my heart was broke.

If only you
Could see past the hate
With a clean pair of eyes,
Through the seas of hatred
Through the hurt and the lies.
Clearly you know nothing
Of how other cultures live
Your narrow mindedness
Reminds me there is no help to give.
Only through education
Can you hope to find understanding
Through understanding
Can we find peace,
The skin of another
Does not mark a man
Intelligence equals thinking
I've seen lesser men turn and ran.
Alas you must continue
To dance amongst the raindrops
With fingers...

Atoms split when I track my breath
Sulfur and pitch lining my back and chest
Firelicks climb my spine, wrap as a vest
Feet move and switch, heat grooves to kiss
Every inch of my skin. My spin is equal parts
Epiphany's wish to exist and Lilith's hit list!
I jaw like every move is an apocalyptic test
Too raw to be smooth. So I'd way rather seduce you with my awkwardness!
Desire strong, so I firebomb whole songs
Chaos bonds so I play along or slay along
Art runs out the floorboards, floods the beams
I got Montagnards in my...

Looking inside
The box
I †see
A grey haired
old woman
Looking back
at me
Looking serene, appearing demure
A look that hides the truth for sure
No more spirits, no more demons
No more shouting, no more screamings
Your peace, at last, finally assured
Your mental illness finally cured
I searched though all the madness
through pain, fear and sadness
of how you languished in your brain
just pretending to be insane
Insanity you chose as a means of escape
But memories still rape my mind
Off how you responded...

staring inside
the box
I see
a grey haired old man
staring back at me
you stared that stare a thousand times
the look of a poet who had no rhymes
you has so much anger, so much hate
which you took out on me at an alarming rate
strangely your hands always seemed enormous to me
big enough to beat a child but unwilling to set him free
if love equaled kicking and beating black and blue
you showed your love for me every day anew
what had I done to make you do the evil you did
why did you not allow me just to be a kid
I still...

Screaming, fighting, horror
Babies crying in fear
Fists clenched baring teeth
Punches landing
Two loved ones
Both wrong
Both driven
Gemini of the highest comparison
Dogs barking, cats fleeing
Gut wrenching feeling
Can't stop it
Rat is scared and squashed
Neighbours listening
No one helping
Left struggling
Tempers flying
Can not be divided
Earth soaks up the atmosphere
Shudders thudding
Heads exploding
Nightmare unleashing
Finally over
Wounds inside and out
Tables turning
Road looks destructive...
